A place to MEET & have a BALL! We are brand new to Patchogue & couldn't be happier to serve our local community freshly prepared meatballs a variety of different ways.

Our idea began years ago when we realized the simplicity of the meatball and how it is a comfort food to many. We all grew up with our Grandmothers making Sunday dinner and "The Meatball" being the focal point of the day. We cherish those days of coming together with our families and the memories we created. Our goal here at "That Meetball Place" is to create an atmosphere for friends and families to gather together and enjoy each other’s company in a relaxed environment with a great vibe and simple food like grandma used to make. Our chef has taken fresh ingredients and developed meatballs, salads & sides to satisfy everyone in your family. We are excited for you to join us on this journey and please make us your "Place to meet and have a ball!"

The music was absolutely way too loud, we were unable to even hear the staff when ordering. Staff continuously pulled down their masks in order for us to hear them and had to stand super close in order to even ask for water. Wait staff was nowhere to be found during bottomless mimosas. Arrived on time (2pm) and the restaurant ran out of orange juice for mimosas. Overall poor experience.

Very nice looking bar. Very loud. Food was pretty good. Had the Marinara meatballs which were very nice as was the Mac and Cheese. The sandwich I ordered was a little bland and flat.. Not what I was expecting. Good for drinks and Happy Hour.

My family and I had a great experience.
Nadine was great. I told her I needed Gluten Free choices & she went above & beyond to present numerous food choices. The food and environment was enjoyable.. We'll be back soon!

We had a birthday brunch this Sunday with family. The server was super attentive without being overbearing, pleasant, professional, helpful, and had a great attitude. The atmosphere was really nice and the food was delicious. Most of us ordered the "Bottomless Mimosas"; this was a terrific value. The pricing on the menu options was great as well. We are looking forward to celebrating at Meetball Place again!

Made a reservation for 3pm on Saturday. Got to the restaurant and the music was so loud that the hostess couldnt even hear our name for checking us in. The place was packed with way to many people for the current situation, and we were given a tiny table right outside of the kitchen doors where people were constantly coming in and out. Stayed 5 minutes and then had to leave. Not a great experience for what was supposed to be a birthday meal.

Food here is great however, it is loud and service can take long. We were going here every month for a date night. Tonight the hostess didn’t like that we asked to sit in the back where it was quieter. She didn’t care that we decided to not stay. Not very friendly or helpful. Went elsewhere and will continue to go elsewhere from now on.

Our food was horrible. Surf and turf $35 and asked for medium steak. Steak came out well done and like rubber. Crab legs sat in water way too long and were soggy. Waiter didn’t even ask how our food was.

Brunch at the Meetball place is always such a great experience. Mer really goes above and beyond to always make us feel welcomed since we are pretty local and basically come in every Sunday.
The food has never been better or more consistent with flavor and execution.

Everything was great except for the fact we made a reservation for 5 people and got sat a table for 4. Luckily our 5th friend was late but we asked for an extra chair or to move to a bigger table probably 10 times and was never accommodated.

Just a place for young people to go, reminds me of a college bar not a place to enjoy a dinner. Too much noise and commotion. They have nice managers but some workers seem to have no patience, which is concerning. How can you work in this industry and have no patience? Also they advertise perigees as raviolis yuck.

We tried several different dishes. Some were excellent (Lamb balls, Burrata,) others were good. Crab cake was a disappointment but then this is not a seafood restaurant. Overall experience was good. We will go back. Unhappy to find we were charged an unadvertised 3% fee for using credit card, but they made it right when pointed out that we had no prior notice of this potential fee...diners be warned.

We went for Sunday brunch and the DJ and crowd was energetic. Our food came out very quickly. Reasonable prices for portions. The only downside is the menu doesn't really have any meatballs anymore!

Food was excellent. Value is lacking. $14 for 3 medium meatballs (albeit very good) no pasta or side with it- the average person is going away hungry if all you order is the meatballs !?!? Sandwiches are excellent and normal portions for your money.

Service was absolutely terrible. The server refused to wear his mask over his nose and was abrasive. In addition, we received the wrong children’s menu which was not told to us until after we ate and there was another outdated menu from which we ordered from but was told it was not available. The timing between appetizers and the main course was horrible. All food was received at the same time resulting in main course being cold after we finished our appetizers. The server was unaccommodating to remedy this.

The noise level was obtrusive. The open windows and doors leads to excessive noise from the street. Due to being in Main Street, you get traffic noise that makes for a poor experience.
